On the second night of Kansas City Fashion Week 2019, models stomped the runway in everything from plaids to pleather to playful tween wear. As one fashion-show blogger mentioned, “We saw fab looks this evening that ran the gamut—paying homage to everything from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel to the military.” Here’s a look at what the designers brought to the runway last night. Teisha Barber, the president of Kansas City Fashion Week helps us break it all down.

Duane Topping — Topping Designs 
“Duane is a retired veteran. He experienced a difficult time adjusting into civilian life with PTSD as a constant demon. Following his love of art and fashion, he taught himself to sew in the fall of 2016 as a way to escape. He found peace in the creative process and Topping Designs was born.”

Hayden LA — Hayden Girls  
“Based in Los Angeles and expanding on the success of its contemporary sister brand, Hayden Girls was founded in 2016 to present the Hayden LA customer with a broader range of tween sizes.”

Hannah Swanson- Hannah Kristina Designs
“A collection of evening gowns and two-piece outfits.”

Brittany Westbrook — Westbrook
“A collection of dresses and separates in navy/hunter green plaid.”

Madeline Kim — MADDIE LUCILLE
“’Of Wit & Whim’ is the name of her Fall/Winter 2019 RTW collection. This collection features bold, spunky colors/prints mixed with voluminous fullness, pleated and pin-tuck details, and contrasting textures. Inspiring confidence and meaning, the collection is comprised of structured silhouettes with whimsical details that can be worn to work or out with friends.”

Clarissa Knighten — Rissa’s Artistic Design
“A returning jewelry designer whose new collection includes wood with resin inlay and leather with a natural feel of the earth. Partnering with Buckle from Oak Park Mall for collection clothing.”
